Flaked Salmon and Cucumber

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by WiGal

Variation from Martha Stewart site. "This recipe calls for a hot-smoked salmon fillet. Unlike cold-smoked salmon (usually sold in thin slices), hot-smoked salmon is fully cooked and flaky."

This made for a very pleasant and tasty lunch! Since it was just for myself, I scaled this to 1 serving. There was more than plenty of dressing. The two changes I made were macadamia oil (instead of grapeseed, which I didn't have) and baby romaine lettuce (I'm not a big fan of frisee). I liked the delicate strips of cucumber, which melded in perfectly. I favor hot smoked salmon, although some times it can be hard to find. I'm glad I did. Thanks for sharing this unique salad.
